Hello Guys !
I have stumbled upon a problem that i can't seem to fix. I need to make a hole on a side of the part. As you can see it needs to be under an angle.
Is this possible ?
Are you looking to something like this? If is, simpler than you think.... Use Reference Geometry and the choose that surface
Do you mean you need to cut a hole through the side?
Yes, I need a hole on hole on the first angle.
Why can't you just create a plane parallel to that angle and sketch and extrude cut the hole from that new plane?
But what do I give as second and third reference when creating the plane on the surface ?
Oke I fixed it ! I first made a the planes the same as you sugested Todd. Then I made a new plane on the angled surface and it works ! thanks for you help guys and have a nice day !
I'm only a novice myself, so there might be an easier way but I would just go to the side view (your picture is almost there) sketch a line parallel to your angle, another line parallel to your straight edge that runs from your angle and just use those two as references for the new plane (hopefully) Sometimes I have to play around with which line I select first when entering the plane references to get the plane at the angle that I need (still learning). give it a go........
Yes, This is exactly what I need
Now I would like to make 6 holes on the angled surface. is this possible ? or do I have to make 100s of plane's ?
You should be able to circular pattern the hole around the axis of the part (I think)
I'm sorry but I can't seem to figure that out because im drawing on a plane thats in the angle ...
Here's another approach you can try that doesn't require you to create any reference geometry.
1) Start Hole Wizard
2) Choose the type and size of hole you want
3) Click on Positions tab
4) Click 3D Sketch button (this will allow you to place HW points on any surface, normal to that surface)
5) Place a point on the desired face
6) Constrain the point somehow (I made it coincident to the Top plane and then created a linear dimension from the bottom face to the point to define the height location)
7) OK to exit the feature
8) Start Circular Pattern
9) Select the central axis or cylindrical face or edge
10) Select Equal Spacing
11) Set number of instances
12) OK to exit pattern feature
That's a very detailed explanation, terrific!
I've added that to a little file I keep with tips and tricks in it (I'm a novice), I hope you don't mind.
